Thanks for the heads up, Just been and brought one and can say it's a good hoover for the money.....but it is very loud and the plug lead is not very long....apart from that it's great!
#7
Can't speak for this particular model but had a similar VAX before and it was unbearably loud.
Got to the point where I just stopped vacuuming altogether!! :whistling:
#8
It's not a ''HOOVER''
IT'S a VAX
#9
It's typical that after I have bought a Henry after months of umming and arring, as soon as I do two vacuum offers appear.. Sods law..

Oh well, I do like the Henry and they are supposed to last for years so I can't complain.
#10
I like the look of that. I went for the £43.99 P1 [url]www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/4063627.htm[/url] -good reviews.

Would be nice to hear from owners of the P2.

Yup, Miele are the mutts dangly bits for hoovers but try picking one up cheaply.

Oh, and I still refer to GMTV as TVAM and sticky tape as sellotape and all blue doughy stuff is blu-tack. And the non-sticky sticky stuff is a Pritt Stick..

The power of meerkatting.

Ooops, might need to tippex that last bit out.
#15
Can't seem to find any good reviews for this model.

Which love the Miele range
#16
for £38, you get a vax vacum cleaner, with a year's warranty, if it breaks apart after 6 months, you can go to your local comet, get it repaired or replaced, simple, and if it dies after a year, you got your monies worth, win - win situation!
#17
The only thing to remember with these is to ensure you clean the filter regularly - far too often VAX cleaners stop working because their owners cannot be bothered to do a little regular maintenance......and then wonder why there isn't any suction or why the motor stops working when the safety cut out kicks in!!!
#18
Can I just say my family are very messy and we get through Hoovers like theres no tomorrow. These Vax Hoovers have been the longest lasting we have ever had. Other more expensive ones rarely last a year.
#19
Anyone buying this pls note that it is not suitable for laminate/wood flooring. I have a VAX and it doesn't pick up dirt from these floors. Just making you aware.
#20
how does vax match up against a dyson?
#21
Dont know if its a bad omen or not.....got our vax on monday - used it today for the first time (well hubby did) and sparks started flying from the on/off button. Then it completely died. The vax helpline didnt have a clue why and said to take it back get another one - he'd never heard of this happening before but said it was a great bargain (not the spark marks on the carpet mind :( )
Will get another and try it tomorrow but not too hopefull any more.

What do you get when you spend £40 on a vacuum cleaner?

Yes, a £40 vacuum cleaner.

My 7 year old Dyson was picking up less and less and the Vax is managing the exact same feat and it's minutes old. Worth pointing out too that you have to build the vacuum (no, we don't need no Chinese factories to do that when the willing British public are at the ready!).

Overall, it's of acceptable quality compared to the Dyson but the design (self-build + 4 screws) and centre of gravity (it's hanging over like a drunk priest) is poor. I suppose it's to be expected when you spend £43.

Good point (no plural sorry) is the suction of hose is quite good.

Also, -something for those who like fingers where they should be- don't put your hand underneath because the brush spins via the motor. I popped my hand under (as you do) to see why the suction was crap and nearly lost a couple of fingers :p

£100+ price? I don't think so. BTW, at Argos I was informed it didn't have a "Dust collector as advertised".

I'll give it a few days and take it back if I'm not happy with it. Just to give a bit of balance I know Vax do have a good name and vacuum cleaners have gotten cheaper and cheaper as the years went by and one of my in-laws bought 4 or 5 vacuums before being happy. I thought she was mad, but maybe not.

Although the first commercial vacuum cleaner was invented by William Henry Hoover, the term 'hoover' is now in common usage and unprotected and can therefore be used to describe any brand of vacuum cleaner. From the Oxford online dictionary:

Hoover (noun) - a vacuum cleaner
Hoover (verb) - to vacuum-clean (a carpet) (often: foll. by: up), to devour (something) quickly and completely.

Sorry to be so pedantic, but you started it. :whistling:

By the way, this one's cr4p.

This vac is currently one of the weekly deals on ebay at £34.99 delivered
( though its sold over 480 already and the deals only started today - so it won't last long)

I would like to apologise to Mr Dyson :oops:

http://img442.imageshack.us/img442/5420/dc04.jpg
[size=1]Former ½ price Woolies bargain[/size]

Decided to open the [sealed] DC04 instructions and realised there was a washable filter :p Tis only been 8½ years since I noticed. I only remember buying this and seeing the words "lifetime". D'oh.

Anyway followed this [url]www.dyson.co.uk/support/help.asp?article=269&product=DC04-SY-STD-BC[/url]

All I can say is my filter was well manky as you might reckon. I washed it, let it dry off and the DC04 is back to its glory days I can tell you!

The Vax will be going back because now it's even more obvious it's complete tat. Cool if you only want to spend £40 but if you're a Dyson owner you know the quality you should be getting. Yes, you have to spend but there's loads of refurbs on eBay for pennies or buy 2nd hand and get Dyson to rehaul it (or clean it yourself).
